Andrews rules himself out of Le Mans 24-Hour

Crocked Honda Legends star Simon Andrews has ruled himself out of competing at next weekend's prestigious Le Mans 24-Hour World Endurance round as he hasn't yet got enough strength in his injured arm.

The Evesham cider magnet is still recovering from the near-fatal crash on lap one of this year's Isle of Man TT Superbike race, where he fell at Les Graham Memorial. Although doctors are pleased with Andrews' progress, he doesn't feel fit enough to race for that length of time.

"It's a shame as I haven't raced at Le Mans but my arm just isn't strong enough yet and I haven't got full movement in it either. I am going down to the circuit with the team as fourth rider and will do as much as I can to help," said Andrews, speaking to bikesportnews.com from inside his mum's wardrobe.


"Hopefully, I will be able to get out in practice and have a ride around to learn the circuit. It will be good to get back on a bike again as it has been nearly three months now since the crash, and then I will start my preparations for Macau where I will be on it like a dog eating hot chips...
